title = "Explicit Construction of Local Hidden Variables for Any Quantum Theory Up to Any Desired Accuracy",

abstract = "The machinery of quantum mechanics is fully capable of describing a single realistic world. Here we discuss the converse: in spite of appearances, and indeed numerous claims to the contrary, any quantum mechanical model can be mimicked, up to any finite accuracy, by a completely classical system of equations. An implication of this observation is that Bell{\textquoteright}s theorem is not applicable in the cases considered. This is explained by scrutinising Bell{\textquoteright}s assumptions concerning causality, retrocausality, statistical (in-)dependence, and his fear of {\textquoteleft}conspiracy{\textquoteright} (there is no conspiracy in the language used to describe the deterministic models). The most crucial mechanism for the counter intuitive Bell/CHSH violation is the fact that, regardless the settings chosen by Alice and Bob, the initial state of the system should be a realistic one. The potential importance of our construction in model building is discussed.",
